The significant of notecards

Things you want to understand before making them:

Make sure you understand the material before making the note cards on it.

  • Do not make a card on a term you barely understand. It will only make the process more frustrating.

  • Make sure you have established a strong understanding of the material. Using notecards will help keep your understanding strong throughout time.


Don't over complicate the process of making notecards:

  • Limit yourself to only one concept, term, equation per card.

  • DON'T overstack note cards and put too many terms on one card.

  • Keep it clear, concise and straightforward.

  • Try to include images to help with clarification on the topic and terms.


Stay away from list naming cards:

  • It makes it very hard to recall 10 items at once.

  • Instead, be strategic by shortening it and be more specific in the list rather than having a broad and general notecard.


Duplication of cards:

  • This is not a bad problem because you will run into this issue when doing a test review.

  • Use this as an opportunity to get more new information on the topic that was discussed.
